Wearing Fiji will pay tribute to the women of Fiji and their roles in communities, in its upcoming fashion show. The theme sets the tone for the fashion project’s third year, which takes shape in Suva in September.

Wearing Fiji co-founder, Samson Lee, said women played a pivotal role in mothers, leaders, teachers and our nurturers. Every year the project picks a theme to celebrate from the environment to the people, a statement from Wearing Fiji said.

This year, Wearing Fiji pays homage to Fijian women in communities for their contribution to homes and livelihoods, and the protection and transmission of cultural knowledge.

Driving Force Mr Lee said women were the driving force behind the local fashion industry.

“Whether it’s wearing one of our designers at a cocktail in the city, or wearing a sulu and jaba at a soqo, or a beautiful sari at Diwali, we are rich in diversity,” he said.

“This year will celebrate that,” said Wearing Fiji co-founder, Neisau Tuidraki.”

“The mentor designers and student designers will debut collections, drawing inspiration from the women of our communities”

Wearing Fiji has four mentor designers, and five student designers showcasing this year at the HFC Stadium on September 10, 2022. Tickets are on sale at Wearing Fiji Boutique, Butt Street, Suva.
